Wheelchair access to a Wonder of Nature

Table Mountain is not as flat as its name suggests – and yet, there are pathways at the top that offer wheelchair access, allowing as many people as possible to soak in the view from one of the world's New7Wonders of Nature.

In fact, wheelchair access is in place from the moment you arrive. Use the wheelchair-friendly MyCiTi bus or park in the specially demarcated parking (make sure that your disabled parking disc is visible) for easy access to the Cableway.

There are lifts at the Lower Station to get you where to need to go, and the Rotair cable cars can easily accommodate a wheelchair. Please let our staff know what your requirements are and they will be more than happy to assist. Find a spot near the window, which have been designed to be low enough for wheelchair users to enjoy the amazing views on the way up. 

Once at the summit, we have paved paths that make up our wheelchair route, enabling you to explore. Check out the downloadable map below for more details. This map can also be obtained from the Ticket Office, and is printed on our Information Guide.

If you prefer to be accompanied by an expert, there are free guided tours you can join. These 30-minute guided tours happen on the hour from 09:00 to 15:00 daily, departing from the Twelve Apostles Terrace (below the Café).

Your trip around the top of the mountain will no doubt leave you needing some refreshments. The Table Mountain Café has ramps, wide aisles and toilets for people in wheelchairs.
